So, what has gone wrong at Boro?

We should have switched back to wing-backs yesterday in hindsight. Fry has been a big miss and I don't think McNair can play in a 2 without him. Should have gone with McNair, Bola and Djiksteel as the 3 CB's, then Fisher and Johnson as wing-backs.

Suppose, aye. Many things to think about .. Brentford getting beat now aren't they last I checked?? It's rock-hard calling results in this league, especially at moment! I did say yesterday Derby would beat us though and had them on my accas haha (felt bad betting against my own team but ..) annoyingly usual 'bankers' wrecked them for me elsewhere. I did have Derby, Bournemouth to draw, Burnley, Leicester and couple of others in La Liga I got right but I got ruined elsewhere. First time I've bothered betting in ages, started doing accas bored since Boro have been on the slide to try make my lockdown Saturdays more exciting ha ha ha

Kebano does look like he's gonna be good for us like, aye. I want Johnson to be starting games and though I said in earlier posts Watmore has ended up quiet .. I hope he will still contribute and be a useful asset more often than not.

Everyone did expect the points yesterday or mostly anyway it seemed ... but not me. Once all the newest signings are up to speed there'll defo be more goals in this side, but not from our actual strikers like Britt, Akpom I don't believe. There'll be one or two but I've really lost my patience with the two of them. I hope we can replace them with a couple of clever picks from the lower leagues or someone who will deliver for us once we're finally a side with proper wingers etc who can provide better service etc.

Still plenty of points to play for this season, but personally I am already thinking about the next campaign and what we're gonna look like as a team before the first game. I hope we get it right for once.
We shouldn’t be looking at next season or the summer.. but we have quite a lot of players in on loan and players out of contract. It’s a big job whether we go up or not.

Watmore offers more to the team than Britt does for me and Johnson has brought more to the table than a now injured Yannick Bolasie.

We need to re jig the team and prepare for doing without Fry and Tavernier for perhaps longer than we had anticipated.

I’ve wanted up to switch back to wing backs.. but it’s easier said than done.

wingbacks might get us a scruffy point but that wont get us into the playoffs. we looked very solid earlier in the season when we played five at the back. the tradeoff was that we scored very few.

the move to four at the back yielded more goals and marginally better results. at least until the new year.

weve since invested in players who are only suited to playing as wide forward players rather than as full backs. i think were better off trying to play our way out of this bad form with a back 4. hopefully the new signings will come good and tav will be back soon.
